Congratulations on your engagement! If you would like to be married here at St. Rose of Lima, please call the rectory to schedule an appointment to meet with a priest or deacon. No date for a wedding will be set by phone. Couples must make arrangements in person at least six months in advance. Arrangements can be made only after all consultations are complete. It is recommended that you set your date with the church before you contract with a caterer.
Our Ministry to Engaged Couples includes:
• Your initial interview with a priest or deacon
• Participation in FOCCUS and Pre-Cana
• Preparing your wedding liturgy with a choice of appropriate music
• Readings and Prayers and the arranging of your rehearsal
If you are getting married at St. Rose of Lima, the following are agreements and documents which you will need - some for informational purposes, others you will need to submit to the priest or deacon assisting you with your wedding preparations:
...and so that we will be able to send your Marriage Certificate to the correct location, a New Address and follow-up form.
If you need assistance with downloading any of these documents; or have any questions, please feel free to contact the rectory at 516.798.4992, and we will be happy to assist you!
